The purpose of the current study was to determine whether knee surface rolling and gliding kinematics differed between genders during open and closed kinetic chain movement conditions. Eleven unimpaired adults (six men and five women) participated in this study. Sagittal plane path of instant center of rotation measurements were obtained with videographic motion analysis and applied to a mathematical knee model from which joint surface rolling and gliding kinematics were obtained. In addition… Expand
Gender differences in knee kinematics and its possible consequences.
TLDR
A higher proportion of joint surface sliding with consecutive anterior tibial displacement in women indicates more strain during knee extension, potentially making the female anterior cruciate ligament tend and susceptible to injury. Expand
Gender differences in tibio-femoral kinematics and quadriceps muscle force during weight-bearing knee flexion in vitro
TLDR
It is indicated by the results that in a squatting movement females compared with males produce higher muscle forces, suggesting an increased demand for muscular stabilization, whereas tibio-femoral kinematics was similar for both genders. Expand
Age-related changes in kinematics of the knee joint during deep squat.
TLDR
It is confirmed that some aspects of squat kinematics vary significantly with age, and that the basic methodology employed here can successfully detect these age-related trends. Expand
Assessment of a medial pivot total knee arthroplasty design in a cadaveric knee extension test model.
TLDR
In vivo testing compared open-kinematic chain behaviors of cadaver knees in their normal state and after implantation of the knee prosthesis, which exhibits kinematic behavior similar to that in theirnormal state, with no difference in quadriceps force required for extension. Expand
In Vivo Normal Knee Kinematics: Is Ethnicity or Gender an Influencing Factor?
TLDR
Small differences in maximum flexion between genders and ethnic groups were found and it may be important for future implant designs to incorporate these characteristics, such that only the lateral condyle experiences greater posterior femoral rollback, while the medial condyle remains more stationary throughout flexion. Expand
Relationships between knee valgus, hip-muscle strength, and hip-muscle recruitment during a single-limb step-down.
TLDR
Gluteus maximus recruitment might have greater association with reduced knee valgus in women than does external-rotation strength during step-down tasks, and gluteus medius strength might be associated with increased kneevalgus. Expand
Changes in knee kinematics following total knee arthroplasty
TLDR
The purpose of this study was to determine the kinematic degrees of freedom having significant changes and to evaluate the variability in individual changes to allow future study of patients with poor clinical outcomes. Expand
Contributory factors to the results of gravity-assisted pivot-shift test for anterior cruciate ligament injury: the significance of muscle torque around the knee
TLDR
The results of the multiple logistic regression analysis showed that the flexor/extensor peak torque ratio of contralateral uninjured knees and sex had a significant correlation with theresults of the GAPS test. Expand
Relationship between knee joint laxity and knee joint mechanics during the menstrual cycle
TLDR
Knee laxity correlates positively with knee joint loads, and increased knee laxity during the menstrual cycle may be a potential risk factor for anterior cruciate ligament injuries in certain women during sports activity. Expand

A comparison of knee joint motion patterns between men and women in selected athletic tasks.
TLDR
Women on average may have certain motor control strategies that may alter their knee motion patterns that may contribute to the increased anterior cruciate ligament injury rate among women, according to a comparison between men and women recreational athletes. Expand
Comparison of tibiofemoral joint forces during open-kinetic-chain and closed-kinetic-chain exercises.
TLDR
Analysis of tibiofemoral compression forces and electromyographic recruitment patterns revealed that the closed-kinetic-chain exercise produced significantly greater compression forcesand increased muscular co-contraction at the same angles at which the open-kinetics-chain exercises produced maximum shear forces and minimum muscular co,contraction. Expand
Landing characteristics in subjects with normal and anterior cruciate ligament deficient knee joints.
TLDR
There is an interplay between the stiffness characteristics of the hamstring muscles and their activation by central processes and this study suggests that not all ACL-deficient subjects take on a landing strategy to minimize stress to their knee joints. Expand
Comparison of Intersegmental Tibiofemoral Joint Forces and Muscle Activity During Various Closed Kinetic Chain Exercises
TLDR
The results showed that the mean tibiofemoral shear force was posterior (tibial force on femur) throughout the cycle of all three exercises, indicating that the potential loading on the injured or reconstructed anterior cruciate ligament is not significant. Expand
Three-dimensional kinematics of the human knee during walking.
TLDR
The measurements have identified that substantial angular and linear motions occur about and along each of the JCS axes during walking, and do not support the traditional view that the so-called 'screw home' mechanism of the knee joint operates during gait. Expand
Sagittal Plane Knee Translation and Electromyographic Activity during Closed and Open Kinetic Chain Exercises in Anterior Cruciate Ligament-Deficient Patients and Control Subjects
TLDR
To minimize sagittal translation during nonoperative management of anterior cruciate ligament-deficient knees, closed kinetic chain exercises are preferable to open kinetic chain exercise, and importance should be attached to the spontaneous coactivation of the quadriceps and gastrocnemius muscles. Expand
The envelope of passive knee joint motion.
TLDR
An accurate experimental database for the passive (in vitro) freedom-of-motion characteristics of the human knee joint is created on a subject to subject basis, suitable for the verification and enhancement of mathematical knee-joint models. Expand
Dependence of cruciate-ligament loading on muscle forces and external load.
A sagittal-plane model of the knee is used to predict and explain the relationships between the forces developed by the muscles, the external loads applied to the leg, and the forces induced in theExpand
Control of knee stability after ACL injury or repair: interaction between hamstrings contraction and tibial translation.
TLDR
The analysis suggests that modest hamstrings forces during IQC can help protect the ACL, and in the complete absence of an ACL, hamstrings contraction as well as ATT may be inevitable while using quadriceps near extension. Expand
Plyometric Training in Female Athletes
TLDR
This program was designed to decrease landing forces by teaching neuromuscular control of the lower limb dur ing landing and to increase vertical jump height and may have a significant effect on knee stabilization and prevention of serious knee injury among female athletes. Expand
